The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. Proverbs 22:9
Once again the theme of helping the poor comes up. Throughout the Old and New Testament we see a two pronged approach: God blesses us so that we can bless others, and quite literally the pattern can continue (those who are blessed by us can bless others and so forth). There is great wisdom in that pattern.
Too often, however, we rely on Government agencies to do the job for us. But we can do it better personally.
Consider one thing you will do this week to help the poor. You will not regret the decision. It will take you out of your comfort zone but it will be well worth it.
